Although trained at the New England Conservatory of Music as a jazz singer, New York singer/songwriter Heather Masse is equally versed in a variety of American song traditions, which influences her more prevalent work in folk, pop, and bluegrass.
A member of the Billboard-charting folk group, The Wailin’ Jennys, she has performed at hundreds of venues across the world. She was a frequent guest on Garrison Keillor’s A Prairie Home Companion, both as a solo performer and as a member of The Jennys. On the show, she collaborated with artists such as Elvis Costello, Wynton Marsalis, Sheryl Crow, Renee Fleming, and Emmylou Harris.
Heather continues to perform with The Wailin’ Jennys supporting their newest Album, “Fifteen” released on Red House Records, October 2017. Heather can often be heard singing duets with Garrison Keillor, or performing at venues across the country with pianist Jed Wilson.
Masse and Wilson met as jazz students at The New England Conservatory of Music and have been performing together ever since — for more than 10 years. Their live show mixes a range of music, including folk, jazz, blues and country. Their collaboration has resulted in two albums and a host of appearances across North America. In 2008, Masse released “Many Moons,” an EP of jazz-inspired folk duets with Wilson. Their newest recording “Hold On” (to be released late summer/fall is an intimate, moving record of original songs and selected covers.
